Introduction
Hi!  I'm Lia.  My real name is Amalia which rhymes with Mama Mia and not Somalia.  This is why I go by Lia.  I'm a single mom of 2 amazing kids who are 9 and 13.  I work full-time as a Data Analyst, specializing in Business Intelligence report development.

I started Smart n Snazzy to share my love of fashion, DIY projects, beauty, and decor.  I have expensive taste but a limited budget, so I wanted to hopefully inspire others!  I also started it to have a creative outlet.  I've always been making things since I was a kid; it's helped with my anxiety and focus issues.  I graduated from University of Colorado Boulder with my degree in Mathematics after also studying a lot of physics and astronomy. I am obsessed with 90s punk music, the beach, Mediterranean food, sports, and a good drink.
